Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why does the Western world look to migrant laborers to perform the most menial tasks? What compels people to leave their homes and accept this humiliating situation? In A Seventh Man, John Berger and Jean Mohr come to grips with what it is to be a migrant worker—the material circumstances and the inner experience—and, in doing so, reveal how the migrant is not so much on the margins of modern life, but absolutely central to it. First published in 1975, this finely wrought exploration remains as urgent as ever, presenting a mode of living that pervades the countries of the West and yet is excluded from much of its culture.

Synopsis:

John Berger introduces a new edition of his seminal exploration of migrant workers, illuminated by photographer Jean Mohr.

Jennifer Efting, January 1, 2011 (view all comments by Jennifer Efting)
John Berger's writing is even more urgent and important today than when he began his career over 30 years ago. He writes with a tremendous compassion and intelligence. I always learn from his writing - to look harder and deeper at the human condition and the world around us.
